The movie directed by Bharath Bala, has Dhanush and Parvathi
Menon in the lead roles. Movie deals with the story of a
construction fishermen, who will be kidnapped and taken hostage in
Sudan by mercenaries. The movie is based on the real incidents,
which took place in 2008.
Bharath Bala's Mariyaan is getting a huge response all
over. As we all know that Dhanush is an excellent actor, and he has
again proved this with Mariyaan. The movie has benefited
Dhanush and Bharath Bala.
After smashing B-Town audience with Raanjhanaa, Dhanush
is all set to impress his native audience again. Mariyaan
was much anticipated movie of the year and it has been well worth
to wait. Critics have given positive reviews for

Mariyaan's team work is the best, apart from Dhanush
and Parvathi Menon the technical team has equally worked hard for
the movie. Even when the movie pace will slow down in the second
half it is the character that holds the audience till the climax.
On the whole Mariyaan is an experience worth your
Rediff: 3 Stars
Dhanush has completely immersed in the character and Parvathi
Menon has never allowed Dhanush to overshadow her. Marc Koninckx's
cinematography is one of the highlights and the visuals are
captured realistically. The only drawback of the movie is the slow
pace in the second half. It is definitely a must watch
Behindwoods: 3 Stars
There is no question of the crews hard work and the lead casts
outstanding work. Mariyaan might not appeal to the common
man who is seeking unadulterated entertainment. A movie with
breathtaking visuals, heart-stopping musics terrifically talented
cast set on a very leisurely paced narrative.
Indiaglitz: Ratings 3.5
Magnificence acting of Dhanush has proved that, he is no more an
ordinary actor and Parvathi's chemistry with Dhanush is one of the
best in Tamil cinema. Rahman is one word 'Awesome' and Marc
Koninckx's cinematography sum up the movie. A fine movie not just
to watch and enjoy, but to feel and relish.
Mariyaan is technically brilliant. Be it the scenes in
the fishing hamlet or in Sudan, where even the driest desert looks
stunning, these scenes never fail to dazzle you every instant. The
film's pace could one of the reasons masses may not embrace
Maryaan, as much as they have cheered for Dhanush's films
in the past. Irrespective of its Box-Office response, I believe
this one will go down as one of the brilliant love stories.
